So, looking at IMDB's chronological list of all Alpha Video releases (http://www.imdb.com/company/co0017254/), we can assume that any pre-1964 American film that appears there is pd? Yowza! Quite a lot on that list I'd love to see here that has yet to be uploaded...I think I need to put together a wish list...

Video-Cellar:

"You can assume that most US films from before 1964 released by Alpha are PD. ... Like many other "PD"/budget distributors, Alpha also carries licensed DVDs of independant producers' works. So it is best to thoroughly check."

It seems that a few titles are licensed by Alpha. One would have to detect and avoid those.

I guess that all Alpha films produced by the poverty-row studios would be PD.

Video-Cellar said that it's safe to assume that Alpha Video titles made before 1964 are public domain.

Well, it IS pre-1964 and it IS Alpha so I guess I can run with it.
